• congestive heart f
  • β adrenergic receptor antagonists (also called beta-blockers or β-blockers) were initially developed in the 1960s, for the treatment of angina pectoris but are now also used for hypertension, congestive heart failure and certain arrhythmias. (wikipedia.org)
  • splenomegaly
  • Portal hypertension and related splenomegaly and reserving of the platalets in the spleen is the most important reason for thrombocytopenia (21). (thefreedictionary.com)
  • Earlier described as Banti's disease, tropical splenomegaly syndrome or Bengal splenomegaly, or hepatoportal sclerosis, it is more popularly known as idiopathic portal hypertension (IPH), or non-cirrhotic portal fibrosis (NCPF) ( Figure 2 ). (clinicaladvisor.com)
  • In another model of indwelling cannulation of the gastrosplenic vein, repeated injections of Escherichia coli resulted in the development of splenomegaly and an increase in portal pressure at 3 months. (clinicaladvisor.com)
  • venous
  • The initial thickening of the intrahepatic portal venous channels, which is associated with obliteration of small portal venules and emergence of new aberrant portal channels, is quite characteristic of NCPF. (clinicaladvisor.com)
  • biliary
  • In approximately 10% of cases, anomalies associated with biliary atresia include heart lesions, polysplenia, situs inversus, absent venae cavae, and a preduodenal portal vein. (wikipedia.org)
  • shunt
  • In an H-shunt, which could be mesocaval (from the superior mesenteric vein to the inferior vena cava) or could be, portocaval (from the portal vein to the inferior vena cava) a graft, either synthetic or the preferred vein harvested from somewhere else on the patient's body, is connected between the superior mesenteric vein and the inferior vena cava. (wikipedia.org)
  • Drapanas, T.: Interposition mesocaval shunt for treatment of portal hypertension. (springer.com)
  • While awaiting transplantation, people with HRS often receive other treatments that improve the abnormalities in blood vessel tone, including supportive care with medications, or the insertion of a transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS), which is a small shunt placed to reduce blood pressure in the portal vein. (wikipedia.org)
  • abdominal
  • Abdominal infection and diarrheal episodes at birth or in early childhood are likely to lead to portal pyemia and pylephlebitis, which could result in thrombosis, sclerosis, and obstruction of small- and medium-sized portal vein radicals. (clinicaladvisor.com)
  • propranolol
  • Propranolol became a best-selling drug, used to treat a wide range of cardiovascular diseases such as arrhythmia, hypertension and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. (wikipedia.org)
  • pressure
  • In this study, the investigators hypothesize that a modification in the composition of the endogenous digestive microflora by oral bacteriotherapy with high potency probiotic preparations could be a safe way to regulate the portal pressure. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • This connects the splenic vein to the left renal vein thus reducing portal system pressure while minimizing any encephalopathy. (wikipedia.org)
  • Resuscitation of all lost blood leads to increase in portal pressure leading to more bleeding. (wikipedia.org)
